"This is a journal of my experiences with depression and mania, which I experienced after being diagnosed with bipolar type II. It's the hopelessness and desperation of living with this illness, from thinking of death by suicide to finding a way of healing. I wrote this book in the hope of helping other bipolar sufferers and to educate the general public about the bipolar disorder." - Wendy Taylor

Essential reading for matriculants, first year university and college students – and their parents!
Your First Year Of Varsity talks directly to Grade 12 learners and first year university and college students who arrive at their place of higher education filled with hopes, expectations, fears and dreams; yet with little understanding of what this new world means and how to adapt, grow – and graduate.
The book addresses all the rules, demands, behaviours, skills and cultural shifts that will turn an undergraduate into a viable part of higher education life. Foster and Mofokeng have written the book in plain English and it is accessible to anyone who can read a magazine or newspaper. An empathetic, no-nonsense and practical guide to understanding the cultural and academic divide between high school and college or university.
Imagine a sisterhood - across all creeds and cultures. An unspoken agreement that we, as women, will support and encourage one another. That we will remember we don't know what struggles each of us may be facing elsewhere in our lives and so we will assume that each of us is doing our best... So begins We: an inspiring, empowering and provocative manifesto for change. Change which we can all effect, one woman at a time. Change which provides a crucial and timely antidote to the 'have-it-all' Superwoman culture and instead focusses on what will make each and every one of us happier and more free. Change which provides an answer to the nagging sense of 'is that it?' that almost all of us can succumb to when we wake in the dead of night.
Written by actress Gillian Anderson and journalist Jennifer Nadel - two friends who for the last decade have stumbled along together, learning, failing, crying, laughing and trying again - We is a not a theoretical treatise but instead a rallying cry to create a life that has greater meaning and purpose. Combining tools which are practical, psychological and spiritual, it is both a process and a vision for a more fulfilling way of living.
And a truly inspiring vision of a happier, more emotionally rewarding future we can all create together...
Brutally dragged 780 metres beneath a taxi – a young woman’s inspiring story of survival, courage, and the will to live.
13 September 2011. The story would shock thousands and be remembered by many for years to come. It would be plastered all over the papers and continue to attract interest well after the shock factor of what happened had passed. Reports and articles would be written, and “facts”, as given to reporters by some of those involved and willing to be interviewed, would be recounted and repeated in all forms of public media over the months and even years that followed. And although these versions would generate widespread outrage, none was entirely accurate.
"The stories were about me. I was there. I am Kim McCusker - the girl who was dragged by a taxi. This, as I experienced it, is the true version of events."
This book offers 50 innovative ways of looking at your business as a long-term, dynamic, progressive entity. Here you will find 50 ways to ditch the atrophying forces and create an exponentially achieving, high-performance culture in your organisation.
Some rules help us, but some don’t. Do you know which to ditch? And do you know how to create a dynamic, learning culture that doesn’t rely on blind bureaucracy? Elon Musk did it with Tesla and Space-X. Pixar does it too. The Israeli Defence Force and US Navy SEALS have been doing it for decades, and their results have been astonishing.
In a world of exponential organisations, rule-bound dinosaurs will fall and fade. But you don’t have to.
They’re your rules. Break them!
The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, gave birth to a generation of leaders forged not in classrooms through hypothetical training, but on the front lines of war through hands-on experience. U.S. Navy SEAL Teams were at the forefront of this transformation, emerging from the triumphs and tragedies of war with an understanding of leadership in the most challenging environments.
Jocko Willink and Leif Babin are just such leaders - highly decorated Navy SEAL officers who served together in some of the toughest combat of the Iraq War. Together, they developed leadership lessons and organizational practices through years of experience, alongside heroes such as sniper Chris Kyle. They took these lessons and helped write doctrine for the next generation of SEALs as BUD/S instructors. Today, Babin and Willink apply these principles in the boardroom via their company Echelon Front. Across the country, they demonstrate how the SEAL approach to leadership that made them successful soldiers can help countless organizations and individuals achieve the highest level of success.
With Extreme Ownership, their proven plan is available to everyone, with lessons that include:
We move through life as it moves through us. We make up stories in our minds. And often these stories overlap.
We hope with all our heart. We dream. We love, often deeply. We experience some gains and some losses. Each of these moments leave an imprint on the rich tapestry of our souls. Sometimes the only way to share the awesomeness is by whispering a few words on the wind.
Memoirs For Kimya is a collection of whispers and a tribute to the many people we meet along life's journey.

Being rich is not normal: most people never achieve wealth in their lifetime. The very word ‘rich’ describes a state beyond the median, and therein lies an important lesson.

Business and wealth guru Douglas Kruger strips away the feel-good hype and gets right down to the practical principles. He leads you through the types of thinking that hold individuals, families and businesses in generational cycles of poverty. He explores the dramatically different approaches of the self-made rich and super-rich, showing you which behaviours to begin practising and which behaviours are traitorous to your wealth potential.
Escape poverty. Raise your value. Change the trajectory of your story.
It all begins with the way you think.

Do you know what practical steps to take to ensure that you and your family thrive financially? If not, this book is for you...
It is much easier to control your finances and plan your investments when you are single. But once a partner comes along and financial decisions are shared, planning can become more complicated, as different people often have different ideas about how to spend and invest money. Without some guidance on dual finances, a marriage or partnership can easily become a statistic – a major cause for break-ups is financial stress. Add children to the mix, and the financial pressure increases.
But it is possible to achieve a financially successful life for your family despite the huge costs involved, and this book will show you how. It covers all aspects of family life – funding the wedding, children, lifestyle and education, as well as divorce, retirement, and the death of a spouse or partner.
Comprehensive yet easily accessible, this is your guide to financial planning throughout all stages of normal family life. A must-read for anyone who is married, is planning to get married or is cohabiting in a long-term relationship.

Op die agterstoep van Marianas eet 'n mens happie vir happie met 'n uitsig op die plek waar jou maaltyd gebore is - nou word dié lekkerte in 'n boek omskep.
In 2000 het Mariana Esterhuizen en haar man Peter op die pragtige klein dorpie Stanford 'n restaurant - Marianas - oopgemaak. Sedertdien het dié restaurant een van die land se top-eetplekke geword en is hulle maande vooruit vol bespreek met smulpape wat van heinde en verre soheentoe optrek. Mariana volg die tuin-na-tafel beginsel en gebruik groente, vars kruie en vrugte uit haar eie tuin. Die pragstuk van 'n boek, ingedeel volgens die seisoene, bevat: gunstelinge uit Mariana se kinderdae, die restaurant se top-disse, gunstelinge uit die groentetuin, en gunstelinge van klassieke kokke (Mariana is 'n passievolle kookboekversamelaar).
Resepte dek die volle spektum: artisjok-geregte, soppe, kerrievis, koekstruif met bessies, gemmerbier, en vyekonfyt - alles selfgemaak!
Superstar comedian and Hollywood box office star Kevin Hart turns his immense talent to the written word by writing some words. Some of those words include: the, a, for, above, and even even. Put them together and you have the funniest, most heartfelt, and most inspirational memoir on survival, success, and the importance of believing in yourself since Old Yeller.
The question you’re probably asking yourself right now is: What does Kevin Hart have that a book also has? According to the three people who have seen Kevin Hart and a book in the same room, the answer is clear: A book is compact. Kevin Hart is compact. A book has a spine that holds it together. Kevin Hart has a spine that holds him together. A book has a beginning. Kevin Hart’s life uniquely qualifies him to write this book by also having a beginning.
It begins in North Philadelphia. He was born an accident, unwanted by his parents. His father was a drug addict who was in and out of jail. His brother was a crack dealer and petty thief. And his mother was overwhelmingly strict, beating him with belts, frying pans, and his own toys. The odds, in short, were stacked against our young hero, just like the odds that are stacked against the release of a new book in this era of social media (where Hart has a following of over 100 million, by the way). But Kevin Hart, like Ernest Hemingway, JK Rowling, and Chocolate Droppa before him, was able to defy the odds and turn it around. In his literary debut, he takes the reader on a journey through what his life was, what it is today, and how he’s overcome each challenge to become the man he is today. And that man happens to be the biggest comedian in the world, with tours that sell out football stadiums and films that have collectively grossed over $3.5 billion.
He achieved this not just through hard work, determination, and talent: It was through his unique way of looking at the world. Because just like a book has chapters, Hart sees life as a collection of chapters that each person gets to write for himself or herself.
“Not only do you get to choose how you interpret each chapter, but your interpretation writes the next chapter,” he says. “So why not choose the interpretation that serves your life the best?”
Do you find yourself suffering under the pressures of your day-to-day life, are you on an emotional roller coaster ride, feeling physically drained and in poor health?
Are you angry, anxious, fearful and guilt-ridden, as you strain under the demands to give more to your work – and others, at the expense of your family life, and feel you have little hope for your future?
Standing Tall In A Falling World is a practical book offering instant inspirational application to help you rise above all of your circumstances and be everything you were created to be. The insights contained in these pages will encourage you to bring change to your life, your business and your future. These writings have been birthed out of life experience and are not mere theory.
Written in daily conversational style, Angelique will connect with you in ways that you can relate to, with the assurance that you can make the necessary changes to enable you to stand tall with confidence, authority and with joy, as the issues of your life shrink into relative insignificance.
